Hi there! Welcome to the Jar Store Idea Center, My name is Susan and I blog over at Momcrieff.
I will be writing blog posts here, like this one, on how to make a hanging mason jar vase. My goal is to share ideas on how to use the jars and glassware sold at the Jar Store.
This is my favorite year round vase. I guess it’s because it’s off the counter and it doesn’t take a lot of flowers to brighten my kitchen. Below are the detailed and easy instructions for a hanging mason jar vase.
In the spring, all it takes is a pretty peony and some leaves for a brilliant splash of color in a room.
I originally bought one of these at a craft sale made with barn board.
But, barn board is hard to find. And if you do find it, the paint is old. You need to seal it in case the paint is lead based. Who wants that worry? Make one with a wood cutout from the craft store and use your own paint to perfectly match your decor.
The shaped piece of wood was only $2.39. I had lots of paint for the board so that was ‘free’. I chose white since it would be perfect on any wall in my home. My local hardware store is where I found the hose clamp. That’s the metal thing that goes around the jar to hold it to the wood piece. A piece of advice. When you go to the hardware store and you don’t know what something is called, take a picture of it. That way you don’t have to do charades in the middle of the store. A hose clamp is an inexpensive item and was $1.39 at my local hardware store.
Construction tip. The wire hose clamp is made of a hard metal and the screw is too big to go through the space. I took a screwdriver and wiggled it in the space to make it bigger.
Quiz time! What’s the metal thingy that holds the jar to the piece of wood?
This is a really easy and fairly quick project that you will love! Make yourself more than one hanging mason jar vase.
